In the mid-1960s, German artist Jörg Immendorff took on babies as a motif in his paintings. He also put them on signs that he made to protest the war in Vietnam — one of which said, “You are nice people” — and put paper versions of them in a cannon he used to shoot out peace-inspiring images. Some of his babies appear in the current, charming show of his vintage work at Hannah Hoffman gallery, like the large wall relief in which two chubby infants scrub one another while in a bubble bath. 1010 N.
